My passion for jewellery making came out later in life. I graduated from OCAD University in Toronto, Canada with a BFA in Painting and Drawing. Working full time as a painter for nearly a decade, I was drawn to the idea of using my creativity in a new medium. I've always preferred working with my hands, and the tactile quality that jewellery making provides seemed like the perfect next step. In terms of my jewellery training, I studied at George Brown College.
